Fundraising In 3 Easy Steps

Race Night Charity Fundraising – Raise Money With Fun

Three steps to a successful fund raising event.

The first crucial element may seem too simple to mention:

Well, by ‘good audience’ I mean, a group of people who have come together to have an entertaining night out and support their cause by spending money on the Tote. It’s absolutely essential to gather as much support as possible before your event. Selling tickets or tables is a good way to gage how many people will attend. Sometimes though, organisers who spend more time on buying horsey decorations for the venue end up with a half empty but pretty room! So make your time count, make sure you have a good, committed group eager to attend. Friends, relations, business colleagues and associates – and make sure everyone on your Committee is geared up to bring everyone he or she knows!

You will no doubt have a rough idea of numbers in the planning stage so the next crucial element is choosing the right venue. There is simply no point in over-estimating numbers and booking the local leisure centre’s largest room. Fifty guests or less rattling around in an otherwise empty room will make it very difficult to create and maintain the right kind of atmosphere.
On the other hand, even though Aces Race Nights have run events on narrow boats – it’s not ideal! Tiny pubs with just enough room to swing the proverbial cat can make for cosy nights but unless they can accommodate fifty plus with a decent view of the screen for all, you should look elsewhere.
So – bums on seats in the right size room. It’s worth mentioning that many pubs have event rooms and a canny organiser can often persuade the landlady to waive the cost of hire as you’ll be bringing a big group of thirsty punters to drink her ale! On the other hand, if you’re part of a group with their own premises you’ll be making a very decent profit on your food and bar sales yourselves.

Here at Aces, we’ve actually lost count of the number of race nights we have supplied since our business started in 2000. It’s probably around the 2000 mark so I think it’s fair to say, we know what we’re doing. Just as importantly, we still very much enjoy doing them. If your Presenter is enjoying his or herself then their audience will very soon catch on. It’s a fun night after all – and not surprisingly, people that are having fun spend more money!!!

A lot of our fund raising tips can be found by visiting our website – or you are always welcome to call for a chat – that won’t even cost you from a landline – 0800 107 7001. June – our race night lady will be glad to take your call.

What determines your wedding venue?

For what must be the most important day of your life, it’s not surprising that most, if not every bride is looking for the very best that she can get with her budget. Not just the venue – although that’s surely top of the list, but everything to do with it – it’s location, it’s size, its character, it’s staff, its reputation – the list goes on and on.

Send a message via our contact form or call FREE on 0800 107 7001 Aces Fun Casinos has been in business since 2000 and we have helped organise thousands of events and provide you with professional, friendly staff and authentic equipment.

Personalised Fun Money, Photo and Event Date

Here at Aces Fun Casinos we are very used to talking through the part of the day we’ll be helping to entertain the guests. The last thing we want to do is add stress to an already stressful situation therefore we are careful to hear what our brides are saying – how they ‘see’ the casino. We’ll create their own unique fun money, their photo, names and wedding date printed on a note for each guest.

We will arrive at least an hour before we are due to open – even earlier if necessary. We’ll make sure the casino is up and ready to open at whatever time our couple decide. We will hand out the fun money, open the casino and at the end we’ll even provide a nice bottle of bubbly for the highest roller before discreetly dismantling and removing our kit.

Sometimes we are asked the dimensions of our tables – one of our brides to be recently requested we visit her proposed venue before she made up her mind. Now usually, in my experience, people planning their weddings will have exacting criteria – some of which are mentioned above but this lovely lady – or her partner to be more precise, was basing his decision on whether there would be enough room to fit three of our casino tables in! It was and what a great rehearsal it became for their honeymoon in – guess where? Las Vegas – where else!
Having helped entertain the guests at hundreds of weddings in the last sixteen years or so, we know a good venue when we see one and are happy to recommend the ones we think would suit best. As for the entertainment – there is no better ice-breaker at any party – especially a wedding, than an Aces mobile fun casino.

Private Party Entertainment or Surprise Business Fun

Our Entertainments team in Bristol recently organised a private party for a business with a small amount of employees and they booked a couple of roulette tables along with a Poker table and croupier. The business owner said they had the best Christmas Party in years. They had been for a meal at a top restaurant in Bristol and then came back to their place of work where Aces Fun entertainment team had set-up the party themed tables, the fun was to follow.

Looking For A Party with Something Different

Our Entertainment is always different, our staff are trained to such high standards and Professional throughout. Your day or night time entertainment is set to your personal requirement, themed or staged to ensure you always get the best value for money. A home Dinner Party with Aces Fun entertainment always goes down as a great surprise for your guests. A Christmas Party Themed night or Dances and Balls always gets a lot of smiles, the staff or guests dressed in fancy dress and the Aces Fun Entertainment staff dressed in themed costumes.

Fundraising Parties

Do you know someone that’s running the London Marathon or taking on a Challenge and they need to fund raise for a charity or Organisation. Our fundraising parties are perfect for these situations.

Casino Fun

Our Casino Fun is extremely popular in Bristol and Cardiff, the locals in these areas certainly know how to enjoy themselves while having some great fun with our cards and roulette fun chips. Poker can be a skill and roulette a mix of luck and mastered artistry…………possibly 😉

Race Nights

This week we arranged 2 race nights in Bristol and one charity race night in Swindon. All 3 were great success and every one that attended left amazing reviews of our entertainment services and were impressed with our Big Screen Races that showed a mixture of horses, greyhounds and our Charity race night had our famous racing battery powered pigs.

Due to our work schedule over the coming weeks we may be limited to blogging so often, therefore we wanted to Wish You All a Wonderful Christmas and a Prosperous New Year for 2014.

The Aces Fun Entertainment Team look forward to seeing you in the new year and entertaining you all in the best entertainment way

Charity Race Nights

How to Book A Charity Race Night

How A Race Night Works

A race night is one of the most rewarding events and a fantastic way to raise valuable funds for your cause be it your local club, charity, school or society.

There are quite a few things that you will need to make your race night a success.

Charity Fundraising Organisers

Depending on your objectives for the entertainment and race night, but most fund raising events are run to make the most money for your charity or cause.

For tips on making the most money we would recommend speaking with one of our Race Night team members. We  are able to give you valuable tips for making money before and during your race night.

Our race night staff are Professionally trained to make sure your event goes by with great success and helping to raise even more money that expected.

There are always many jobs that need to be done before and during the race night to make it a great success.

Pig Racing

Before your race night we always organise the following and incorporate:

A Race Night Promotions Manager – This is an Aces Fun team member.

You will need someone to help put up race night posters prior to the event, speak with local companies to get prizes and sponsorship for the race night. Sell the advanced race night programme if you have one created.

A Race Night Event Manager – Someone to sort out the venue for the race night, Master of ceremonies and event planner.

Horse Racing Organisers

During the charity race night you will need the following.

A Race Night Master of Ceremonies – This is usually an Aces Fun Race Night member of staff but will require confirming when booking us for your event.

Alternatively, you can hire a local MC or better known as a Master of Ceremonies but the local character of the club can usually do a good job and this will help the race night run at a great profit.

Race Night Tote Ticket Sellers – These are staff members or people who take the race night wagers as volunteers.

As our race night betting uses fun betting slips, just like the real thing, it’s very quick to operate and it means that any tote seller can take any race night wager.

Race Night Tote Ticket Payout Members – This is the person who is responsible for paying out the race night winners. Depending upon the size of your race night this can be covered by the seller.

A Big Projection Screen – Someone to be in charge of the displaying of the race night races and the sound system.

Aces Race Night Support Staff – People to help generally on the day of the race night.

Horse Race Nights

Someone who is able to sell your race night programme if you have one available along with your raffle tickets that always sell well if great prizes are to win and not forgetting the cleaners to clear up after the race night punters have all gone home!

As an organisation, you can decide on the size of each race night bet or if left to our organisation then we can run this as we have for many years. The Fun Betting can be anything you like but we would recommend either small denominations of money to increase the amounts of bets placed such as 50p or even £1.00.  You then decide how much of the race night tote the charity will retain for their funds – we would recommend anything between 40% and 60% but this is once again negotiable.

Once you have made all of these decisions, we are able to open the race night tote for the first race.

Punters may place as many bets on as many horses, greyhounds, camels, pigs or any other racing fun characters or animals as they wish in the following race.

When all bets have been placed the race night tote is closed. This is to comply with the current legislation set in the UK.

Big Screen Racing

#Charity #Race #Nights

Once the race night tote is closed the race is selected and displayed on the Big Screen.  Aces Fun supply payout tabulators that make the working out of the race night payout very simple to understand.

We have been providing Charity Race Nights in the UK for many years and are proud of our Professional services and the Team of members we have carefully chosen to work and provide great race nights in the UK.
